Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer
My kenmore washer will do everything except go through the spin cycle. It makes a loud noise like its supposed to be doing something,but nothing happens. My brother looked at it & said there's no belt in it. Iss this an easy & inexspensive fix or should I buy a new washer?
I poked at the sensor (sensor that is is the safety lid switch) which is on the right hand side of the top of the machine. The water pumped out and it went into spin cycle. When I released the switch or lever to activate the sensor, the cycle stopped. I then proceeded to unscrew the sensor switch. I carefully I pushed the sensor pad up (It was stuck). Screwed the switch back in place and ...Wha la! She is running like a top. This sight is very helpful. I love not having to pay anyone to fix my problems! Kudos!!!!!!!!!!!

I took the lower front cover off of my washer. There is a pump that pumps out the water. The hose from the drum (the thing that holds the clothes and the water) has a square thing that I guess works like a pea trap.
I removed all the items on the pea trap. Removed the hose. Removed the drain hose and looked at the motor. there was something stuck, a piece of bra pad, in the motor splines. I put everything back and the washer workde just fine.
Hope this helps someone.

He is right there is no belt in that unit only the older models had a belt they are direct drive now It sounds like you have a basket drive problem but before I tell you thast for sure i need some answers to these questions Does it Agitate ok?? does it pump out all the water. With the lid switch press in and the unit in spin cyle can you hand spin start the unit?? After you answer that it will give me a better idea of whats going on.
